Today was a great day!! I fired up my 67 110 on the engine stand. Started up the first try. Set the timing and let it run for 60 minutes then shut down for an hour then let it run for another 60 minutes. No leaks to report, cold valve adjustment worked out great. TSP distributor and Airtex fuel pump equipped.

The engine was in great shape inside but total disaster everywhere else. Original everything. Seals and all. Engine was covered in oil on every possible surface. Seals were brittle. Main seals were hard as a rock and pouring oil out. With the help of many people on this forum and reading through dozens of posts, I was able to rebuild the engine with the exception of the crank and cam. This being my first Corvair, I very much appreciated all the support from the members here.

Now that the engine is good to go, I can move on to the rest of the car. Thank again to everyone and look forward to more great interaction !!!
